Lemsip Max can ease many symptoms of cold and flu, and is ideal for those looking for a simple, easy to take remedy that will help them to feel more like themselves. Some of the symptoms Lemsip Max can help with include:
Lemsip Max contains two active ingredients which work together to ease cold and flu symptoms. The first is paracetamol, a popular painkiller which people use every day to ease aches and pains, such as headaches and sore throats caused by a cold or the flu. Paracetamol can also help to reduce a high temperature or fever. The second ingredient is phenylephrine, which is a nasal decongestant. Phenylephrine helps to reduce the swelling in your nasal passages, easing congestion in your blocked nose and giving you room to breathe, while reducing the pressure that can cause headaches.
